Under Secretary gives energy challenge talk on April 25

The U.S. Department of Energy´s goals for meeting America´s energy challenges involve energy security; reduction in greenhouse-gas emissions; and promoting changes in energy supply, transmission, storage, and use. And even within those challenges lies another: energy change can be slow.

Dr. Steve Koonin, Department of Energy Under Secretary for Science, will give a talk on America’s energy challenges on Monday, April 25, at the Chicago Public Library’s Harold Washington Library Center in the Cindy Pritzker Auditorium. Koonin will discuss the technology, policy, and economic levers we can use to transform the energy system while enhancing U.S. competitiveness in the global economy. The talk will take place at 6 p.m. Registration is required and can be done prior to or beginning at 5 p.m. the day of the talk. The event cost is $10 for advance registration, $15 at the door and $5 for students. Members can attend for free, but must register.
